Gone To My Happy Place (via Modern Technology)

(I would like to think that) Everyone has a happy place. The place that no matter what is going on in your life, in the world, in your day, you go to and all your worries disappear. You find a sense of calm. You don’t think about the past or the future…only the present. You truly LIVE in that moment.

I have been lucky enough to find 2 places that bring me this joy.

1. Disneyland

2. The Arthur Ravenal Jr. Bridge in Charleston, South Carolina

I have been unfortunate enough to fall in love and find peace with 2 locations that are hundreds of miles away…with that being said I HAVE BEEN FORTUNATE ENOUGH to be able to access them daily via modern technology.

Yesterday I met Cinderella in Fantasyland, ride the carousel & Dumbo, and have a fight with the Abominable Snowman at the Matterhorn, all while in my condo, Thanks to the X-Box Kinect Disneyland Adventures Game. IT WAS MAGICAL!

And this morning I was feeling a little homesick, missing the charm of Charleston & my gorgeous boyfriend (aka The bridge…we’re offical on Facebook. Not kidding. Check it out), so I went to YouTube and pulled up one of my favorite music videos, Darius Rucker “Come Back Song”. I cant thank Darius (a Charleston Native) enough for making this video and allowing me to revisit some of my favorite places in the city.

I know it’s not the real thing…but it’s something…and that’s good enough for me.
